Cork Airport’s use of social media and digital channels saw it declared the overall 2018 Cork Digital Marketing Champion at the Cork Chamber Skillnet Digital Marketing Awards.
The Irish Examiner-partnered awards drew more than 250 leading digital and social media marketing experts to Rochestown Park Hotel, where 18 awards were given out across a range of categories. All forms of digital marketing were feted, including website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, while the best use of digital marketing to showcase Cork and the best use of digital marketing for the greater good were also celebrated.
Cork Chamber vice-president Paula Cogan said:
Cork Chamber’s mission is to make Cork the best place for business, and it is clear from these awards that Cork companies are driving a thriving digital economy and changing how we do business locally, regionally, and nationally
Seamus White of Granite Digital, overall sponsor of the awards, said digital marketing is an essential ingredient in the success of any business. “An awards programme like this recognises creativity and innovation, ensuring that the natural competitiveness of Cork businesses is rewarded.”
Aoife Dunne, Cork Chamber Skillnet training manager, said the standards are rocketing every year, “sending a serious signal about how great and creative Cork companies are in the digital space”.
